Elvis Presley traffic lights appear in German town of Friedberg - DW (English)Saturday, December 8, 2018
Ampelmännchen in Berlin. Created in 1961 in what was then East Berlin, they now appear all over the united capital. The city of Augsburg now has the Kasperl puppet character in a pointed hat, Mainz has its own Mainzelmännchen, Bonn has Beethoven traffic lights and in Trier a small, chubby Karl Marx lets pedestrians know when to cross. The eastern town of Erfurt has had up to 14 different kinds of lights since the 1980s.
40 years after his death, Elvis reaches fans from beyond the grave From small town boy to household name Born in the town of Tupelo, Mississippi, Presley began his career in Memphis, Tennessee. He is pictured here in 1954 while recording at the famous Sun Studio in Memphis, which also helped launch B.B. King's career. Quickly rising to fame, his first hit, "Heartbreak Hotel," propelled him into stardom in 1956.
40 years after his death, Elvis reaches fans from beyond the grave A GI in Germany Presley put his career on hold while serving in the US military in Germany from 1958 to 1960. Stationed in the small town of Friedberg, Presley stayed in a hotel in nearby Bad Nauheim instead of living in the barracks. There, he lived with an entourage: his grandmother, father and two body guards. Today, hotel guests can sleep in the Elvis Room, which was preserved to commemorate the King's stay.
40 years after his death, Elvis reaches fans from beyond the grave Made in Germany Although he was prohibited from performing during service, the King still found time to make music. Germany was the birthplace of two chart-toppers: "One Night" and "A Fool Such as I." He also gave global fame to the popular German folk song, "Muss I denn zum Städtele hinaus," or in English, "Wooden Heart." img itemprop="image" src="https://www.dw.com/image/16162468_303.jpg" title="Elvis Presley Museum opening (picture-...https://www.dw.com/en/elvis-presley-traffic-lights-appear-in-german-town-of-friedberg/a-46610723

Autos sind gefühlt überall, auf den vielen Straßen und Parkplätzen und vor allem auf der Stadtautobahn. Diese verbannt die Saar in ein enges Bett und teilt die vergleichsweise kleine Großstadt deutlich sichtbar in zwei Teile. Vor allem der Blick von oben demonstriert das Ausmaß dieses Eingriffs in die Stadtstrukturen, das in seiner Entstehungszeit vor allem dem Wunsch nach Modernität und Mobilität geschuldet war. Als die Stadtautobahn im Jahre 1963 eröffnet wurde, galt sie als Signum einer neuen Zeit, die auch die Möglichkeit eröffnete, das schöne Saarland mit dem Auto zu erkunden. Heute dokumentiert sie ein gigantisch gestiegenes Verkehrsaufkommen und gilt vielen als zerstörerisches Element einer Stadtplanung, das man vor einigen Jahren sogar unter einem Tunnel verschwinden lassen wollte zugunsten einer grünen „Stadtmitte am Fluss. Der Vortrag fragt nach der Geschichte und Gegenwart der Saarbrücker Stadtautobahn und konzentriert sich dabei vor allem auf deren Wahrnehmung durch Einheimische wie Fremde.Veranstaltungsort: Pingusson-Bau, Hohenzollernstraße 60/Keplerstraße 21, 66117 SaarbrückenKontakt: Salvatore Pisani, Institut für Kunstgeschichte, Tel. 0681 302-3317, E-Mail: email@example.com.

Germany's second-highest traffic bridge opens - DW (English)Sunday, January 26, 2020
The Hochmoselbrücke, or High Mosel Bridge, stretches 1.7 kilometers (1 mile) across and 160 meters (524 feet) above the Mosel River in western Germany. Within Germany, the new bridge in the Rhineland-Palatinate is second only to the 185-meter-high Kochertal bridge in the southern state of Baden-Württemberg. Read more: World's longest pedestrian suspension bridge opens in Germany's Harz region Authorities expect about 25,000 vehicles a day to cross the bridge that now provides a direct link between the regions of Eifel and Hunsrück. Several hundred people gathered for the bridge's opening on Thursday. Over the weekend, thousands of pedestrians crossed the bridge by foot as part of the opening festivities. "Today is a good day for the Rhineland-Palatinate," said State Premier Malu Dreyer. She added that she was convinced "that the bridge will help advance our economically strong state even further and will strengthen ties between the people in Eifel and Hunsrück." Europe's largest construction project The controversial building project kicked off eight years ago. Some critics argued that the massive bridge would destroy the area's idyllic vineyard landscape, while environmentalists argued it would pollute the ground water. Others spoke out against the cost. The building of the bridge was part of a greater road project that included the construction of an additional 25 kilometers (16 mile...https://www.dw.com/en/germanys-second-highest-traffic-bridge-opens/a-51355455
She Believes Trees Will Save Germany — If She Can Save the Trees - OZYSunday, January 26, 2020
Klöckner’s thesis, therefore, is simple: Save the forests, and they’ll save Germany.
Klöckner as German Wine Queen.
Blonde and quick to grin, Klöckner, 46, was born in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate and got into politics early, shortly after her yearlong reign as German Wine Queen, a position that’s sort of like Miss America but for German wine. Before the age of 30, she was a member of the Bundestag for the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), Angela Merkel’s ruling party. In 2012, she was elected as one of the deputy chairpersons of the national party. By 2016, she was running for Minister-President (governor) of Rhineland-Palatinate. Articles touted her as a potential successor to Merkel. And then she lost.
she has the difficult job of juggling these different interests and keeping everybody happy.Joachim Curtius, professor of geosciences at Goethe University
Klöckner’s more conservative than Merkel in some ways, a trait that hasn’t always served her well electorally. Her opposition to Merkel’s open-door asylum policy is widely blamed as a factor in her losing her 2016 race, and as recently as this year, she called for a burqa ban in Germany. Still, while the ultraconservative AfD party has wholeheartedly embraced climate change denial, Klöckner — as minister of food and agriculture — doesn’t have the luxury of ignoring scientific evidence. “The climate change has hit us much faster than expected,” she said at a forest summit last month, and while the scientific community might argue that it was definitely expected, she’s now gearing up for battle against the conditions that are destroying the forests.
“Climate change isn’t German; it isn’t going to be solved in Germany. None of the existing policies around the world are up to the scale of the challenge,” says Britta Fri...https://www.ozy.com/provocateurs/she-believes-trees-will-save-germany-if-she-can-save-the-trees/221908/
German teachers fined for treating wasp sting with heated fork - DW (English)Tuesday, April 23, 2019
Hesse were fined for causing bodily harm with their questionable home remedy for a student's wasp sting. The incident occurred during a school trip to a youth hostel in the neighboring state of Rhineland-Palatinate in May 2017, when a 14-year-old student was stung by a wasp. In response, a 39-year-old male teacher heated the handle of a fork with a lighter and pressed it on the boy's hand where he'd been stung. After a blister formed, another 40-year-old female teacher cut it open and treated the wound with cream. The student's lawyer said that as a result of the sting, the boy had to wear a protective glove for a considerable period of time. The German daily Bild reported that the boy's hand became infected and that he wasn't able to attend an internship as a result. A district court in Cochem fined the male teacher €2,700 ($3,160) for causing bodily harm. The female teacher was fined €2,500 ($2,900) for both assisting and causing bodily harm to the student. The decision was made last Thursday, a court spokesperson said, adding that the judgement is not yet final, as a timeline for appealing the decision has not yet passed.
